A developer, entrepreneur, gourmet-food distributor and a Director of
Progressive Grocers of Jamaica. A graduate of New York University
with a B.A. in Classical Literature of Western Civilization (Magna
Cum Laude) with a Minor in Business Administration and
Photography, he is also a recipient of the NYU Founder’s Day Award
for academic excellence. While living in New York, he worked for
several years in magazine publishing at Conde Naste’s Details
magazine and then later for American Express Publishing’s Travel
and Leisure magazine, which he credits to being the most impactful
years of his formative, professional and creative life.
Jamaica in 1997, he assumed the role of Director in his family’s retail, food business and has
actively been on the path to revolutionizing and elevating the retail, supermarket experience on
the island. In September 2011, after the passing of his father, Kenneth Loshusan, he became
Chairman of the Board of Kenneth Loshusan & Sons. His principal retail stores include John R.
Wong and Loshusan Supermarket, winner of the Jamaica Observer’s Table Top Award for
“Total Shopping Experience” eight times in the last ten years. In 2012, he was an integral part in
the development and construction of Sovereign North plaza and in 2014’s development of
Sovereign Village in Portmore. Taking his vision internationally in 2014, he formed Loshusan &
Company in London, England and opened Amorino UK, a fine, Italian gelato franchise that
established the Italian company’s presence in England. Also in 2014, a lover of art and culture,
he was asked to be on the Board of Advisors of Miami’s Museum of Art and Design, which is
currently housed in Miami’s Freedom Tower.
His current projects include developing a boutique
hotel in Eleuthera, Bahamas, slated to open in late summer 2021, and a commercial, mixed-use
development in the Barbican district of Kingston, which he believes will be a source of design
inspiration and a beacon of hope for future generations of young Jamaicans. His proudest
accomplishment to date, however, has been the birth of his twins, Sofia and James, in late 2018.
